Know Your Strengths, Vulnerabilities, and Triggers

With a realistic eye, can you identify your own strengths, vulnerabilities, and triggers? Knowing and understanding these, especially in relation to your challenge, will help you be more effective. Everyone has hot buttons that others can press that take us out of the game. Everyone is both a resource and a limitation. Get to know your strengths, vulnerabilities, and triggers, and learn to manage them.

Questions to Ask Yourself

  • What are you good at? How do you know that
  • What leadership or personality assessments have you taken (for example, Myers Brigs, Strengths Finder, DiSC)?
  • What is the best way to use your strengths in your particular leadership challenge or situation?
  • What are your weaknesses? How are they showing up in your situation or challenge?
